Not so sure.

Here in Australia a few weeks back the X34 dropped in price by around AU$400 to AU$1599 which is way out of sync with the current US price of around US$1220-1299 ish, accounting for the exchange rate and GST it should be around AU$1999.

It may be Aus is over stocked, one single 40 foot containers worth would be a lot in the small Aus market, but it still smells of dumping with this new version looming.

Acer are more likely to exaggerate the time frame imo.

I just bought the LG 34UC88B....when this monitor (X34p) comes out the LG will be moved from center to make space for this monster. To hell with waiting, buy one now to get me through the wait IMO. You'll always be waiting for something better. When the x34p comes out the wait will then be for a 144hz IPS 34" ultrawide with gsync. Never ends.

I would usually agree with the waiting statement, however even with some of the X34 issues resolved its clear from user reviews you will still be playing lotto to get a good one.

If you want a 34" G-sync IPS panel there are not exactly a huge amount of options, this next generation model might be something close to perfect which is what one expects when shelling out this kind of money. Lastly Swivel is nice, I actually use it a bit.

I'll gladly wait 6 months for 100Hz native, swivel, less chance of issues and/or a more perfected product, new style of back (does not face wall), better OSD and most of all, not playing the lottery to decide on what I can and can't 'deal with' for $1300.

I don't really understand the need for a gaming 34 inch monitor I believe you can't go higher then 27 inch if you want to stay even remotely competitive in online games.

Plus the framerate matters and there is no gpu to drive this monitors at 100hz and SLI sucks who's ever says otherwise isn't really playing wide range of games.

I don't even mention luck of developer support for wide screen.

Then don't buy one?

How is the LG- heard they got rid of IPS glow and BLB almost all of it. True?

A 6700k w/ 1080 will drive this monitor just fine at or near 100FPS, especially with gsync. Additionally, not everyone plays first person shooters competitively or even at all - me being one of them.

To your last point, you'd be surprised at how many games support 20:9 and if they don't, so what - got some black bars on the side which isn't a big deal at all.

How is the coil whine situation recently?

Considering swapping my X34 for another one, due to coil whine.

But on this monitor the coil whine is medium, I had 3 in total, 1 was worse and the other was almost silent, but then also this one works at 100hz and has relatively ok blacks and whites, still has the usual orange crap on the left on black background, but I think every X34 in existance has similar... I already kept this one out of 3... So I guess my chances of getting one without coil whine, but that does not work at 100hz or has worse BLB or white uniformity, is then not great.

Wish I could just get a monitor and they were all the same, instead of trying to get a compromise....

They should all have similar BLB, white uniformity, no coil whine and work at 100hz considering the RRP... But unfortunately I have to weigh up if its worth swapping this one due to coil whine, as I might then get one thats worse in other ways...

I did have 3 of them(x34) and all of them did suffer from coil whine!What is extremaly annoying!When gaming not a problem but when web browsing it was driving me crazy.I dont mind a bit of back light bleed but that buzzing...!!But i did have a asus pg348q and and the same problem frown.gif so it went back for rma:/ now im with out a monitor ! I have email overclockers uk about X34A and it should be less defective than X34 but should i trust it? I will whait for the replacment or refund for the asus and make a decision.
